THIRD: we had the chance to spend a weekend in LAS BEGAS! (yes i know i spelled it with a “b”) we got to stay in a fancy room

1. you get me out of bed in the morning!
2. you always give me something to do, like cleaning up your messes...
3. you make me get a whole lot of exercise! walks, runs, and roller blading every day!
4. you take me places to meet new friends! i've met so many new friends going to the dog parks every day.
5. you make me smile. every time i walk in the door, whether i've been gone for four seconds or four hours, you are always happy to see me!

Step two: Use the bottom of a glass to make a circle pattern. I make three different sizes...
Step Three: Use one of the patterns to cut out six circles...
Step Four: Fold the circles in half and iron themStep Five: Fold the half circles in half again and iron so you have six quarter circles.
Step Six: Tie a knot at the end of some regular sewing thread and sew three stitches on each "petal". Use the same string for all six petals so they are all connected.
Step Seven: When all the petals are sewn together, scrunch them all up and shape them into a circle. With the same thread, stitch the two ends together so the circle shape will stay together.Step eight is to sew a hair clip to a small piece of felt and hot glue it to the back of the flower.
Step Nine: Pick out a cute button that is big enough to cover the middle of the flower and hot glue it on!

it all started when i woke up in a terrible mood thanks to my irritating job and missing victor while he is gone all day. I decided to try and distract myself by going somewhere new! I didnt know exactly where i wanted to go, but i did know that i wanted to head to downtown baton rouge. the only problem was that i didn't have the gps because victor uses it for work. Sssoooo this is the story of my journey last wednesday.....
first of all, I was so distracted by trying to take a picture of the amazing bridge over the mississippi that i missed downtown all together, after turning around, i took a random exit and was feeling a bit forlorn, thinking i would probably just have to turn around and head home before i got hopelessly lost when i saw an artsy looking store sitting on the corner. here are a few of the neat things i found inside:
after seeing the art, antiques and other nik-naks, i walked to the back end of the store and saw an old, bearded man putting away a violin. I walked up to him and asked how long he had been playing for. the short version of the story is I made a new friend, who is amazing at playing the violin (and guitar and banjo...) To be honest, I think he was feeling a little bit lonely that day too. It cheered him up to have someone interested in his stories and it cheered me up to see how happy i made him and to listen to his beautiful music. When i asked him if i could photograph him as he played, he absolutely beamed. It made me happy.
so, it turned out to be a pretty good day. I went home happy to have seen a new place and new things and met a new person.

these are our apartments, they're really nice! i enjoy spending a lot of my time here -->
there are really big bugs like this one....
ew gross, i just searched pictures of the bugs that look like the ones here and they are just too nasty to upload.
people are friendly here and no one has incomprehensible accents! hooray!
i miss my family... and victor is gone all day.... but i guess its worth working really hard for four months so we dont have to work hard for 8 months!
